The Fresno Irrigation District (FID), formed in 1920, covers 250,000 acres between the Kings and San Joaquin Rivers and from Kerman to Trimmer Springs.

Like most valley water districts, the sprawling water agency began as a collection of privately owned canal and land companies.

In recognition of hitting the century mark, FID will hold a series of events with its growers and partners throughout the region, according to an FID press release. Information on those events will be upcoming.

FID has created a Centennial webpage where the public can learn more about the district’s early days, important milestones and the people who made it all happen. The website will be updated monthly.

The district has also launched a new logo as part of its year of celebration.
